Life is Good, but side effects still exist.

I have officially completed the chemo regime. My chemo doc words were to the effect of: If I thought two more treatments of chemo could extend your life 50 more years from 100 to 150 years-then I'd order 2 more treatments. I'll take the 100 years...
So, now I am on the "study" drug only...which has its side effects, but NOT as drastic as chemo. (This will be completed in June.)
My recent CT-scan is clean and clear.
I am grateful everyday, and am now processing what has happened in the last six months of my life.
My emotions feel tender, but I can manage life well if I keep it "in the day."
